Thanks to its partnership with Microsoft, Dropbox now lets you edit Office files you have stored in your Dropbox right in your browser via Office Online. When you view a Microsoft Word, Excel or Powerpoint document stored in Dropbox, just click the new Open button to open the file in Office Online and perform whatever edits you need.
Android: It’s not exactly difficult to view PDFs in Android — you can use Google Drive, Google’s new standalone viewer, or countless other apps. But if you’re a Dropbox user and regularly work with PDF files, the addition of a native PDF viewer in the latest version could be helpful.
In a clear play to get Dropbox users over into their own cloud storage camp, Microsoft is offering an extra 100GB of OneDrive storage for free for a year. All you need to do is sign into OneDrive (or create an account) and let OneDrive send a file to your Dropbox account to verify you are a Dropbox user. Then you should have an additional 100GB of space for 12 months.

That should be less of a hassle in the future, with Microsoft announcing new integration options for Office that will let any cloud storage provider be added to the list of save locations.
